Nice hike up a paved road, or you can drive up and there is some parking along the way and at the top. Good views but nothing special

Came upon this unassuming tower and were impressed by its sense of peace and simplicity, very calming and welcoming. One can only imagine poets, both then and now, visiting and gaining inspiration. Enjoyed the easy climb and expansive views of Greenfield.

We walked to Poet's Tower from downtown to take in the views. It's really pretty there and worth a stop. Just make sure not to walk down the road to the left, that was the very long way back into town.

We've been here for exercise, for pre-wedding photo-ops, for lunch, sunset, always a nice spot. Overlooks the whole town and has a variety of trails in several directions. Interesting geology too.

This stone tower had existed for nearly a century. It's easy to access with a simple drive and plenty of free parking at the tower. It's not handicapped accessible. There are several flights of cement stairs and each plateau offers a nice view of town....More

Worth the hike and climb even in drizzly and cloudy weather. Limited parking. Each of the 4 levels provides a unique perspective.
